The Philadelphia 76ers will start Michael Carter-Williams, Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes, with Lavoy Allen coming off the bench.
But Brett Brown sees a lot of questions marks on his roster after that initial group of six.
"You have six NBA players and then you have a bunch of guys who are fighting for spots and want to be seen and need opportunity," said Brown.
The 76ers have injuries to Nerlens Noel, Kwame Brown and Arnett Moultrie, who all have guaranteed contracts.
Brown said high character will be the determining factor in deciding between two players who are close in talent.
"It's not even close," Brown said. "It has to be [that way]. Imagine going through the learning curve and the learning pains and, at times, some losses are going to be mounting up and mounting up and mounting up."
